. and they are saying that at least preliminarily a letter that was sent to president obama and received on tuesday at an offsite mail facility has tested positive for ricin. when mail goes to the white house, it doesn't actually go to the white house first. it does go to an offsite facility. this is the same case with capitol hill. keep in mind and i know our joe johns has been reminding us of this, there are people that have to process it. and obviously ricin is a very dangerous substance. so there's certainly concern there about the people who had to process this, but this was intercepted on tuesday. and the big question now is, is there a connection here between this letter, this one letter and the other letter sent to senator wicker and the bombings that happened in boston on monday? it certainly is remarkable timing and really makes you question that. jay carney, the white house press secretary was asked about this during a briefing a short time ago. and he wouldn't rule out that there was a connection. i think the reason a lot of people are asking is the bombings happened about 3:00 p.m. on

the largest industrial disaster this decade. president obama quickly pledged federal emergency funds to the area. rescuers spent hours searching through rubble for survivors. the disaster started with a small fire at west fertilzer plant. according to reports, the company was fined $2,300 by the epa for a saftey violation, but settled in 2006. the german parlaiment is backing a $13-billion bailout for struggling cyprus. it's nearly twice the amount estimated a month ago. german taxpayers worry even more money may be needed. the cyprus parliament votes on the bailout package next week. the german prime minister calls the rescue essential, and says without it there's a "significant risk" of contagion to greece and other eurozone countries. closer to home, researchers say the cell phone industry is poised for consolidation. in today's cover story, the watch is on for buy signals from consumers as apple and samsung jockey for position. and, t- mobile offers new products and plans. "we had a fantastic weekend. our customers and employees have been waiting for the iphone for a long time."
's platform for economic growth stand out from countries all around the world. president obama's 100,000 strong in the americas initiative will create even more opportunity for students over the course of the next years. finally, we know we have a responsibility to continue to address our security challenges. tore going to continue affect close security cooperation, respect for human and civil rights. we understand those are deeply enshrined in both u.s. and mexican constitutions. at citizen security is critical to e ople of both of our countries. it's really good to welcome you here to washington. i look forward to our conversation. i know president obama is very much looking forward to his trip to mexico in may and meeting with the president. there we will be able to solidify some of the things we're talking about today. welcome to washington. thank you for the extraordinary partnership that we share. >> thank you, sir. good morning, ladies and gentlemen. allow me to express once again the solidarity of the people and government of mexico with united states, with the horrific incid
conference president obama spoke from the white house. >> good evening, everybody. tonight our nation is in debt to the people of boston and the people of massachusetts. after a vicious attack on their city the people of boston responded with resolve and determinations. they did their part as citizens and partners in the investigation. boston police, state police, and local police responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days. tonight, because of their determined efforts we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. i've been briefed earlier this evening after the attacks on monday, i directed the full resources of the federal government to be made available to help state, local authorities in the investigation and to increase security as needed. over the past week, close coordination over state and local officials to track down leads has been critical to this effort. they all work as they should, as a team. we are extremely grateful for that. we o'a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of our law enforcement professionals. these men and women get up every day an
to stay in washington from sunday through wednesday. >>> so what do members of the obama administration hope the chinese will do? we asked the director of the brookings institution center for northeast asian policy studies, richard bush. >> china is sometimes able to use its influence to get north korea to the negotiating table. it is less able to use influence to shape north korea's negotiating position, and that's the problem. north korea's goals here and its negotiating stance are dimetrically opposed to those of the united states, japan, and south korea. so the question that ambassador davies will probably be asking ambassador wu is, what evidence is there that north korea is interested in negotiating in a manner that's consistent with the six-party talks? what evidence is there that if it makes commitments, it will actually keep them? china's response will probably be it's only if we start a process of contacts and talking and negotiating that we will see what is possible in the long term. our response is likely to be, well, we have a lot of experience doing that, and north korea h
are trying to understand why they carried out the attacks. president obama said this -- >> obviously, tonight there are many unanswered questions. among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks? did they receive any help? >> to discuss the threat of harm, terrorists in the that is states, i'm joined by an international security analyst and former u.s. intelligence officer. he joins us from london. recording ofou a mother has been saying to the media. me that he told would be on the side of jihad. what ever they are talking about, he is a loser. my son would never do this. >> the mother said there that tamrqaln would never be on the side of jihad and would never do this. she says it is a set up. what you make of that? >> it is a mother defended her child. clearly, he was involved and clearly, he was not the man that his mother thought he was. we see this sort of response from parents time and time again when their children embrace terrorism. we seek -- we have seen it i
? and did they receive any help? the families of those killed deserve answers. >> president barack obama has promised to deliver those answers, stressing that the investigation continues. 157 people are confirmed dead and over 5000 injured after a powerful earthquake in southwestern china. the quake with a magnitude of 6.6 hit the province of sichuan. the epicenter was located in a rural, mountainous area near the city. the tremors were felt in chengdu about 150 kilometers away. china's new permit or -- or mirror has arrived to oversee hasue efforts -- premier arrived to oversee rescue efforts. >> the tremors were so powerful that they could be felt for several hundred kilometers. >a toppled buildings and triggered landslides. it brought back memories of the destruction of 2008, when an earthquake left tens of thousands dead in sichuan. doctors are tending to the thousands of casualties in local hospitals. at makeshift clinics set up intense. her father was trying to save her, but rubble fell on his head when he was carrying her out of the house and that injured him, to. >> we still live in
meeting. this is a white house photo of president obama getting updates from security and intelligence officials. he has commended the work done to pursue justice and is underscoring the need to find answers. so here's what is next in the case. top republican lawmakers are urging the president to hold dzhokar tsarnaev as a potential enemy combatant. that would deny him a government-pointed dispoash other legal rights so investigators can learn more about other possible attacks. when he is able to speak he will be questioned by a federal government team, an entire grace group that consists of officials phloem fbi, cia, and defense department. officials did not read dzhokar his miranda rights. charges could come as soon as tonight. >> friends and neighbors in martinez are stepping up to help the family of aaron hearn who is still recovering in a boston hospital after the marathon bombing. businesses around town, including several restaurants, are donating a percentage of their sales to help the family pay for medical and travel costs. a family friend is using her photography business to
. so the tension is going to focus on the obama administration and following this. we saw during the presidential election campaign mitt romney continually criticized the president being soft on terrorism inspect.. >> and the benghazi incident where it seemed they -- responding to the threat sfp. >> the obama administration was reluctant to use the word terrorism and link it with al qaeda. we saw that a little bit last week, a day before the word "terrorist" was used. this is the line the republicans will use against the president, that he's soft on terror. we're already seeing senior republicans accusing the fbi of dropping the ball on this one, senator lindsay graham and senior members of the house. >> are they justified? is there any way of knowing how many threats like this come into the u.s. on a daily, even hourly basis, and whether in the grand scheme of thing this one ought to have raised the flags? >> i'm not privy to the particular piece of intelligence on this. i imagine obviously they would have thousands of these and things on an annual basis. lindsey graham has said
.s. is on the offense when it comes to china and cybersecurity. "the wall street journal" reporting the obama administration is considering several aggressive options to confront china ranging from diplomatic pressure to indicting chinese nationals in u.s. courts. officials tell "the journal" these options is not necessarily imminent, but they demonstrate how cybersecurity has become a central part of diplomacy. >>> and the dreamliner could be flying again within weeks. the faa has approved the aircraft maker's plan to fix its troubled batteries. >>> the top trending stories. plus the atf wants to know what caused a massive ferlt lieser plant explosion in texas. >>> and a funny car that provides anything but laughs in north carolina. details next. >>> more than four days after that huge explosion at a fertilizer plant in central texas, officials say everyone is accounted for. 14 people killed, 200 injured, and of the 14, 10 were first responders. gabe gutierrez reports from west, texas. >> reporter: new video of the damage in west, texas, after a fertilizer facility exploded in a blinding fir
bad. it's a black guy for the obama administration, congress and the faa. this is going to come back and haunt washington in a major way. connell: you said it would be disastrous for the administration. why? >> well, i think ultimately the jury understands there are always ways to cut spending. it would make the obama administration appear as though it is making six. there has to be some other way to reduce expenditures that do not impact flight times and everything. do not think this looks good for congress or the obama administration. connell: most people believe that it is the big four medicare and the fence that would really hit the budget and that is where we would really have to cut back. we do that, there will be political fallout from everything. they like their social security. they like their better. >> yes. i think so. the real problem is government overspent. we also have a lack of growth. if you have strong economic growth, you would not have these problems of revenue shortfalls that come into spending. ultimately, this is pretty basic. there is a lot of pork in the budg
, president obama vowed to bring anyone responsible to justice. >> we will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable. >> counterterrorism officials tell nbc news that multiple explosive devices were found at the scene. security remains tight in and around boston. residents being told to expect a continued heightened law enforcement presence as the city tries to come to grips with a violent attack in the heart of boston. and that was katie davis there with that report. now london's metropolitan police are reviewing security plans for this sunday's marathon after the explosion in boston. the minister told bbc the best way to show solidarity with boston is to continue the race as the french president has stepped up security around public buildings in this country and raised the threat level to red. >>> speaking earlier, it was said the long lasting impact of terrorist attacks are low. >> research into terrorist incidents over many, many years, their economic impact, their direct economic impact tends to be very, very small, indeed. a lot of good research done on this in israe
. the report put out by the constitution project is critical of both bush and obama administration's. it includes former members of congress. this is 50 minutes. >> thank you for your leadership on the task force and i want to express my thanks to the constitution project, but also to all of my fellow task force members what they brought to the table in terms of experience, wisdom, public service really made a difference in the development of this project and important report. as jim mentioned, there's more than 24 findings and recommendations. we can't cover all of those this morning that we want to hit some of the highlights. we hope he will take the entire report, study it through and look at each of those recommendations. why is this report important? it's important because we as a nation have to get this right. i looked back in history to the time during world war ii that we in turn to some japanese-americans. at the time it seemed like the right and proper thing to do but in light of history, it was an error. as of today this report will hopefully put into focus some of the a

in the blast the 76 people remain in the hospital. 20 of them are critical. president obama will visit best temperature to take part in a prayer vigil for the victims. >> there is encouraging news for the family of a martinez boy injured in the explosions. friends and neighbors are coming together to help raise money for the family to deal with their expenses. abc7 news reporter cornell bernard has more. >> it is amazing the love and support that martinez is showing for the 11-year-old aaron hern and the family. custody no different, mountain mike's pizza will raise money to help the family with their expenses. 11-year-old aaron hern was waiting to his mom at finish line at the boston marathon and one of the bombs went off. shrapnel from the blast tore into his thigh, he remains hospitalized at children's hospital. friends and complete strangers have been organizing fundraisers for the family. last night, rocks on main raised $4,000 offering a pasta dinner for the family at $5 a plate. the owners' grandchild go to school with aaron hern. >> i go on facebook and talk about my specials of the

, possibly that is still being tested, to president obama and to u.s. senator roger wicker. what had happened, at its off site mailing screening centers, authorities intercepted these letters. there were preliminary results saying they had tested positive for ricin. now authorities are looking whether or not they actually have. these tests usually take for final confirmation anywhere between 24 and 48 hours. so they're waiting on results of that. these are two letters the fbi says came from tennessee. so they continued their investigation there. meanwhile on capitol hill today, in a number of senate office buildings there were reports of suspicious packages, suspicious envelopes, suspicious packages being sent to state offices, local offices of u.s. senators. much of that has been cleared already. this is heightened sense of really, sensitivity here in washington, d.c. to watch out for all of these kind of things. u.s. capitol police and authorities are asking staff and lawmakers to be ever vigilant here. so far this seems to be the by-product of that. what we're really looking at now, those
know, when barack obama first came into office, we gave away a lot of missile defense scheduled to go into europe because we wanted to please the russians. we wanted to hit the reset button and look where that's gotten it. it's gotten us nothing except we've delayed protections for ourselves and our allies. we have to do what's best for our defense and our allies' defense and do what ronald rean said. we should have peace through strength, not peace through weakness. peace through strength. lou: the north koreans have at least two missiles for launch, estimated to be, by all counts, and of course, yu're far better briefed on this than the people but by all accounts a range of at least 00 miles. how concerned are you that they will, indeed, be launched and what should be the u.s. response? >> well, fortunately, we do have some good theater missile defenses in place today, missile destroyers that we already had and we beefed that up. japanese had some with our help and they're deploying that and we have some inter continental ballistic missile interceptors, lou, in both california and a
